Goodbye authority
The ones that would think that you know it all
Just want you on your knees
Behind the classroom door
Where seasons waste away
They teach you how to right and wrong
But there's a price to pay
A price to pay

Revolution
In the classroom
Revolution
In the classroom

For more than just a day
They keep us from the game of life
And waste our lives away
Always demanding
You fit into the script
Have you ever heard
You'll even, scream and scream
..And scream

Revolution
In the classroom
Revolution
In the classroom

For more than just a week
Just take a look at the work they gave you
It gives the game away
Boredom is normal
And power, the order of the day
Stop your heart from beating

And waste your life away

Revolution
In the classroom
Revolution
In the classroom

Deny the game they play
Just take a look at the world they've made
It gives the game away
Boredom is normal
And the power, the order of the day
Stop your heart from beating
And throw your life away (away)

Revolution
In the classroom
Revolution
In the classroom (fade until end)

    General CommentActually it is not a Sex Pistol song but one made by Dave Goodman (just as Schools are Prisons) even it appears in some official compilations of the Pistols
